    Generally not unless someone did it. That guitar has obviously been worked on, judging from the non original pickguard, and the relic job.

    They look more beveled than I would expect from a stock Squier Affinity neck, someone spent some time and effort to put some love into that guitar.

    I guess so, he must have also sanded the back. It’s bare wood but really nice and smooth and the rosewood is a thicker layer then my MIM Strat has. The neck is also thicker as a whole

    Just for comparison, these are relatively new stock Affinity frets.

    thank you...this is not a fender neck. spacing is too wide. unless its a reissue of one of the vintage years that had wider spacing.

    So you are saying that the picture if the 12th marking is the right spacing for fender? I compared it to my MIM and that neck as wider spacing then the mystery guitar

    If your MIM is a Classic (vintage spec model) it will have slightly wider spacing. Yours is correct for CBS era and later. It is also correct for Squier.
